This is the first song I attempted to add multiple tracks on top of a piano solo.
I experimented with several sounds, including strings, vibes, and the percussion set.
I attempted to mimic the sound and feel of John Powell and his soundtrack for 'How to Train Your Dragon'. The song is attempting to convey the feeling of longing or wishing for something, and then seeing that wish come true. The soft, subdued section is the longing, and then it builds as that wish is granted.
I think of my son, Jackson, who wishes he could fly. In my mind's eye, I can see him sitting wishing to be able to fly, and then in his fairy tale, he begins to flap his arms and takes off, soaring through the sky! Pure joy and exhilaration fills his soul as his wish comes true for that brief moment.
